Schematic Design Underway for New North Eugene

Get a sneak peek at initial design concepts for new high school 

Design work is underway for the new North Eugene High School. Local voters approved a bond measure in November 2018 to construct new buildings for North Eugene High School and two aging elementary schools, and fund other capital improvements at every 4J school. Planning for the new school buildings is underway now.

The new high school will be a high-quality building designed for safety and security, efficiency and sustainability, and modern teaching and learning including career technical education. It will be a community asset able to serve as a shelter after a natural disaster, with resiliency upgrades such as key areas built to an upgraded seismic standard.

The design team for the new high school, Rowell Brokaw Architects and Opsis Architecture, are about one-third of the way through the schematic design phase. The design team began the design process with a program confirmation phase—reviewing 4J visioning, planning, public outreach and facilities documents developed in preparation for the bond projects—and assessing the property to identify opportunities and considerations for site design.

Important themes that have emerged in design considerations include minimizing impact to neighbors and being a positive community asset, safe and clear site circulation, centralized building layout to strengthen the school community and aid in wayfinding and security, and providing usable quality outdoor space. The current concept of a two-story building around a single centralized courtyard supports these themes and will continue to be refined as design progresses.

Community members are invited to an open house to learn about preliminary planning and get a look at initial design concepts for the design of the new high school. The open house is on Tuesday, January 21, 6–7 p.m. at North Eugene High School, 200 Silver Lane. (Learn more and invite friends

North Eugene site work will begin in summer 2020 and the new building will open in 2023. The new school building will be a high-quality learning environment and community asset now and for generations to come.
